    Does Any1 Know of any good shit i.e Breakbeat, reggae, Jungle etc…. that goes on during the week in Cambridge. I moved up here a month or so ago and im still finding it real hard to find anything apart from dum arse student orientated cheese nites.

    It would be helpful. Wonky dan

    Hello Mate. Welcome to Partyvibe!

    I’m not sure about Cambridge, but keep an eye out for Life4Land nights- they play Breakcore and Techno, etc.

    As for Bury, 1foot Skank does every other fri in Studio3, sometimes its just reggae, other times its with Vega doing psy-trance and tekno.

    I’ve got a night called Stomp in Studio3 every couple of months or so. We play a mashup of Old Skool/ Hardcore breakz/ Jungle/ Hardcore & Techno. The next one is on the 10th Nov with djs from Brains Kan, Coalition, Assassin, etc.

    I’ve actually been asked today whether I’d like to do a Stomp in the Junction on the 2nd Feburary. So keep your eyes peeled for that!

    Seems Cambridge is ripe for the taking!

    Thanx to every1 who replied to my crys of boredom (and the horrid music scene) in Cambridge on weekday nites.

    Uve all made me feel very welcome since i signed up the other day and its actually quite alot of fun chatting to people u can’t see ?????, and im getting used to everything now.

    I may have to check 1 ft Daves nite out pretty soon if it is still swinging along.

    Nuff respek 4 ur thoughts, oh yeah and my name is Dan (someone asked!)

    P.S Boomslang at the junction is also meant to be pretty phat, Breakbeat etc………..

    uprizing @ the man on the moon is one to check out, thursday monthly (1st or 3rd i think)

    look out for anyt flyers with structurly unsound, life for land, deeper understanding or fist for underground music nights

    also the junction has stepped up its game a bit with new club nights on fridays an Warning (monthly) is fucking wicked its still a shit venue tho

    just generaly check out the man on the moon, portland arms & cellar bar 8 for decent music, fez & po na na have more comercial stuff on but can be alright

    ah man. i lived in cambridge for 7 damned months and found nothing. i know there are some great parties there but really hard to find without knowing people and lets face it…unless your a student. you dont really meet people in cambridge as there so stuck up. ely is worse tho…

    Its always hard moving into a new area – student or not…

    There’s always a bit of tension between students and locals in a uni area as on one side you get the students who feel they are “above everyone” because of their paper qualifications; but you also get locals who are prepared to fight and rob the students.

    There were (and presumably still are) a lot of problems like this in Reading (where I used to live) and with a few exceptions its often two separate crowds (also the uni workloads are heavier these days)

    There is also a lot of tension these days amongst groups of young people such as ravers even despite the “party drugs” – and a lot of thieves/blaggers around so many people aren’t like what they used the be a few years back where they’d welcome randoms into their existing circle of friends

    Or often people are only welcomed if they’ve got something like drugs, rigs, lifts to parties – its a kind of co-dependency rather than real friendship sometimes. Being “stuck up” is sometimes a defence mechanism but people don’t realise or want to admit they are doing it.

    Also because of (often overblown IMO!) paranoia over infiltration by old bill people who rave are often less welcoming to newbies/randoms than they used to be..

    I hope you’ve managed to meet some new people wherever you are now though…

    I’ve been called undercover OB at parties loads of times! Not so much now i’ve got long hair, but was a good way of getting free rugs!

    the systems ok, they always have more speakers for the club nights (although its no louder due to sound restrictions) dnt know if they are the junctions own speakers or if the’re brought in

    its a good space tho always get a nice sound

    an on the friday night side of things :weee: finialy bogie wonder land (the biggest disco night in the uk) has died an the music of fridays has been brought forward 20 years and now has quite a good line up each week

    private party’s have died down a bit although there a couple of new crews comin in (inc mine when we’ve built the system) so im sure next summer will be as noisy as ever

    any one know if fulborn warehouse is still goin on, herd the’d shut down (an havn’t been there for 6months or more) was a wicked location an on every fri & sat didnt usually play my kind of music tho

    Its all good. My mate works there, which is why we’ve got in! Got a few tricks up our sleave as well……..

    Hopefully be everything you can think of. My usual Stomps consist of old skool, jungle, hardcore and acid tekno. So that’ll prob be downstairs. We’re thinking of putting bands up stairs as well.
